Michael Pollan's Food Rules ($7) may not be a book based solely on going vegan, but what it is, is a book about becoming a conscious, mindful eater, as he opens your eyes to the dangers of Western diets and helps you decide on your own if veganism is right for you.
He's not antimeat, but what he's saying is that we need to start eating real fresh food that hasn't been altered from its original state and is grown locally. The book is broken down into three sections: What should I eat? What kind of food should I eat? And, how should I eat? And here are a few of his "food rules":
- "Don't eat breakfast cereals that change the color of the milk."
- "Don't eat anything with more than five ingredients, or ingredients you can't pronounce."
- "Always leave the table a little hungry."
In general, it's a great motivational book for getting you on the right track with your diet.
